Our digital signal for ITV has disappeared in the last week - can you tell me why and what I can do to restore it

Our digital signal for ITV has disappeared in the last week -
published on UK Free TV

Sometimes people experience problems with the ITV/C4 multiplex (and also the one that carries five) because of the different transmission mode that allows more channels to be carried, but reduces the effective signal strength.

Freeview modes

This can sometimes cause problems when the weather changes (due to the inversion effect).

If you rescan for channels on your box and don't get the ITV/C4 services restored, then you may need to get a new Class I aerial to get reception all the time. However, you should check your cables and connections are in good order first.

Thanks I feel nearer to a solution=all the boxes have differing wall connections in different rooms-where is the common point for the Goodmans boxes-? the satellite dish,

Malcolm J : Just a point, unless all three boxes referred to are Freesat devices? and "not" Freeview as received via a normal aerial, then how can the common point for the Goodmans boxes be the satellite dish?

Malcolm J: I suspected that might be the case, although if the Humax is also a Freesat box and its perfectly OK, then you should try temporarily connecting one of the Goodmans boxes onto the dish feed presently used by the Humax followed by carrying out a retune on it, as that will soon reveal if the Goodmans is defective or not.

By the way, can it be assumed that all three devices have their own individual feeds to the dish?, because feeds from the LNB cannot be linked at any point along the way.

Margaret Toney: Without knowledge of your location, preferably in the form of postcode, it's not possible to make any suggestions as to what could be the cause! We don't know which transmitter you're using so have no idea whether it has engineering work ongoing. You could be tuned to the wrong transmitter. There are other possibilities...

For the past couple of weeks (june/juky2015) our freeview reception of all ITV. And Channel four channels has been zero. All we get is break up and the message no or bad signal. Postcode EX18 . We get TV via digital aerial to freeview box and have had no problems up to now.
